The senior quarterback, who has been out with a concussion since Nov.3, has returned to practice and appears to be on the mend, according to a report.

Arizona Wildcats quarterback Matt Scott returned to the practice field on Tuesday night and could be available for Saturday night's game against the Utah Utes, according to a report from Ryan Finley of the Arizona Daily Star.

The senior signal caller suffered a concussion in the Wildcats' 66-10 thrashing by the UCLA Bruins on Nov. 3, and was forced to sit out last Saturday's 56-31 win over the Colorado Buffaloes. First-year Wildcats head coach Rich Rodriguez has not made a definitive statement about whether Scott will play on Saturday night, but noted that he is "progressing very well".

If Arizona (6-4, 3-4 Pac 12) is without Scott on Saturday, junior B.J. Denker would get the start. Denker was under center during last Saturday's win over Colorado and threw for 136 yards and two touchdowns while adding 44 yards and a touchdown on the ground.

Kickoff for Arizona's clash with the Utes (4-6, 2-5 Pac 12) is slated for 8 p.m. MT at Rice-Eccles Stadium and the game will be televised on ESPNU.
